Chocolate Steel-Cut Oats, Creamy, Delicious, and Healthy!

Chocolate Steel-Cut Oats, Creamy, Delicious, and Healthy!

I don't eat oatmeal every morning, but when I haven't eaten it in awhile I start to crave it. There is something so comforting and delicious about warm, thick, satisfying cereal in the morning. My favorite kind is steel-cut oats, especially since I've started using VitaClay to make them.

Steel cut oats used to be more difficult to make than the quick-cooking rolled oats. Over the stove you have to babysit them, and often they burn or stick because of the longer cooking time.  With VitaClay, however, they come out perfect every time, and with no babysitting or hassle required! Now steel-cut oats are one of the easiest breakfast options I have, and I love that they're so versatile that I can make a different version every time. I can also make a big batch and eat it all week long, cutting down on “hassle time” even more! In the mornings that is a big deal!

I think we can all use one less thing to worry about when trying to get everyone out the door on time in the morning! This chocolate oatmeal has become one of my favorite breakfast treats—and because I don't add any sugar, it's a healthy, guilt-free option that tastes a lot like dessert in the morning. I love it!

***Please do not use this recipe with our stock pot cookers, any recipe that uses steel-cut oats should only be used with our multi-cooker or 2-in-1 units. Again, it is not advised to use stock pots for cooking oatmeal. If you still plan on cooking oats in our stock pot (not recommended), much more liquid is needed: about 8 cups for every 1 cup of oats. Quick-cooking or rolled oats should not be used with any of our cookers, period.
